Anyone who has fished kayak CPR (catch, photo, release) tournaments knows the difficulty presented when trying to photograph your fish on the Hawg Troug while keeping the fish on the trough and your identifier in place. In my second CPR tournament, I lost my only 2 fish of the day while trying photograph them. So I know first hand the heartbreak that an escaped fish presents.
Last week while fishing with friend and YA Regional Pro Andrew Morrow, I was turned on to a quick and simple mod for attaching your fish indentifier to your Hawg Trough board. Only two items needed - ziploc bag and a little bit of duct tape. Place your indentifier in the ziploc bag, and then duct tape it to your HawgTrough.
The unmarked area from the lip up to the 8in marking is a great spot as it will place the identifier right above the body of the fish for your photo.
